Happy New Year.



As 2008 comes to an end, I thought it would be good to look back over the year.

Home schooling has been good and I love doing it. I feel I am getting to know my children better and have a different relationship with them compared to before home schooling.

I have meet many good friends through blogging and really appreciate them all even though I haven't meet them in real life.

I have had a refuge here that I know at a click of a couple of buttons and posts I can have people praying around the world for me and my family needs. Thanks so much for all the people that prayed for my dad, Tom and all our family needs.

My dad is hanging onto life. It is hard to watch someone die of Alzheimer's disease but we are glad to have him here still.

Even though the pump company promised me we would have Tom's new pump by 5.00 pm last night, we are still waiting for it. I tried to ring them last night and find out why we didn't have it but they had left for the day. I am phoning them this morning first thing when they open.

One of the hardest parts of our year was the loss of baby Matthew. We were very excited to be expecting again and felt very blessed by God at the news. When he died, we were heartbroken. Still the prayers of everyone here helped us through and we are comforted with the knowledge that Matthew will never suffer and will always have complete happiness. Matthew was due on our wedding anniversary so we will remember him especially on these days and ask him to pray for us.

I am looking forward to 2009 and to getting to know other bloggers better. Thank you all for your friendship over 2008.

God bless
Therese

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
